Food was excellent! True comfort food. Service was on par, nothing to complain about. We sat outside, because inside was a bit noisy. It was great except for the occasional motorcycle. Overall a great experience!

Food & service were top notch. They need to issue fly seaters so you can kill the pesky house flies that were annoying!

Drinks were fun and delicious. We had the funeral potatoes to start and they were very hot. Just slightly warm but very tasty. I had the short ribs and again the dish didn't come out hot just warm. Very flavorful. It's quite loud in there but very friendly service.

Continues to be a favorite place of mine. Hard to share reviews on places like this, because I don’t want to have to compete for seats as it gets more popular.

Server forgot our drinks, appetizers were good, main entrees took too long and was over salted. Server was not friendly, barely paid any attention to our table. Very disappointed.

Apps were delicious, especially the fried green tomatoes and pigs in a blanket. Entrees also great. I had chicken & dumplings, very tasty, then tried my guest’s meatloaf, OMG! Service was very good.

We will come again! We were seated soon after we entered. We had reservations! The service was excellent, our server was friendly and efficient! The food was refreshingly unique and delicious! There were a couple of flies that kept landing on our food! We came to traditions from the recommendation of our son and our . daughter in law. The hamburger was the best I’ve eaten in a long while!

Tradition is a good and a could be great restaurant. Outstanding service and a great bartender. The food quality was good but the choices were too limited. Has a 2 year old menu on open table with some really great entrees (and not expensive ones)that have disappeared. If you go there a couple of times there’s no reason to return unless you want to order the same thing again. Hoping for a new and expanded menu soon.

The food was delicious and the service was great. I had been here previously, but only for brunch, this was the first time experiencing the dinner menu. We ordered the brussel sprouts and pigs n a blanket for appetizers, and had the short ribs and chicken & dumplings for our main course. All were super tasty. The servers were very attentive and friendly. Looking forward to coming back and trying some additional menu items.

Our waiter Adrian was over and above last night!! He knew the menu very well and also the food! He was very helpful for our first time going here. The food was served quickly and was delish! I would say the service was great and the food was really good. The noise was a little bit loud but we were still able to talk comfortably. It would recommend and will return again. Thank you for the nice evening!

We regularly frequent Tradition. Overall, we have been very happy with the service and food. This experience, I hope, was an exception. I had an extensive dialogue with our Server about wanting to substitute rice for beans. She appeared to understand the change. We waited a long time for our food and when it finally came, the rice had not been substituted. During our long wait, the Server avoided us, even though she kept passing by our table, as if she knew we were becoming impatient with the wait. She never came by to refill our wine glasses or top off the water. When I returned my plate to replace the rice with beans, she acted as if I didn't tell her that. Furthermore, the kitchen was unorganized and complacent. We won't be returning for a while

Trout was great. My husbands short ribs were very good. Fried green tomatoes were delicious. Service was good. Always have a bit of a problem with your $15 corkage. Have a hard time justifying paying $50 for a bottle that costs me $15 at the store so I bring my own. $8 would be more reasonable.
